    I'm about to share today's update, but I'm not sure whether it's any good idea or not?
    There's not much difference to the latest update, as I'm mainly defining the fur texture and adding the layers over...
    But anyway it's been couple of days of not posting , so ...
    I hope you don't mind ;) 27016646_1544922985557314_746642318_o.jpg

    I Like how the furs coming out has a nice soft look to it! I've never seen the green under painting way of doing a Red Picture?I'll have to do a little reading on it.

    I used to use it with pastels, so I thought why not try it again ;)

    I did some reading on the "Verdaccio" technique as soon as you mentioned it, very very interesting and effective, as mentioned it was used by the the old Italian and Dutch masters, it is very similar to how I would normally try to work, how I work is based on the "Mische" technique creating a full monotone painting in umber before adding colour, I'm sure it has the same effect of stopping reds (and indeed other colours) from becoming too overpowering, but I do this mainly because it helps eliminate blue shift when using white due to it's high orange content.

    You can see an explanation of the Mische technique here.

    You are doing well here but I'm wondering if you're green is maybe too green, it seems itself to be a little overpowering in the areas where you have started with you're red for the fur, although that may remedy itself later if you're adding more layers, I'm watching curiously ;)

    Thank you again ;)
    I’ll check out Mische later on ;)
    Please don’t look too precisely on the pictures I’m sharing ...
    It’s because they’re giving false colours.
    I can not see green on my painting, but pictures showing the green too strong.
    I’m using mobile phone’s camera, and it does that unpleased trick ...
    So actually on my painting there is not green as you can see ... ;)
    Sorry for that ;/

    Hi dear friends.
    Been working middle shifts for last week (10am till 8pm).
    I couldn't manage to get to my painting...
    Today I have day off , so I moved a bit forward - but I feel like I got stuck on the same place!?
    I will finish this painting eventually , lol ;)
    Please bear in mind the picture doesn't match well the original I can see...
    The original is more reddish , bit closer to the ginger fox's fur ...
    Thank you.

    Very nice fur texture Pog. I can see a little green still showing through on the Fox. Do you have some more layers to go on him? I know you started with the green base and this isn’t meant to be unkind at all, just wondering.

    Hi Simon ;)
    Lol, you don’t need to explain anything ;)
    You and the other artists are always welcome with concerns and any questions ;)
    To answer your question - I’m not fighting to kill the green underlay - I’m simply laying the multiple colours over it.
    The layers aren’t meant to kill the green, but cope with it and get blended...
    The more layers are placed over, the less visible the green will be ;)
    Wherever you can see the green underlay Simon - it does means, the area wasn’t treated with multiple layers of the colours yet ;)
    To vanish the green at one go, I’d have to cover it with strong opaque colour...
    What would be the point to do such effort with underlay at first place then ...
    Thanks for asking my friend ;)

    Cool, that totally answers my question thanks Pog. It’s been really interesting to see this technique move forward. Looking forward to the rest of it Buddy.

    Somehow I like the green underlay Fred , and it’s working the way I like... I’m just beginner with it, and probably I’m not doing it much properly, but I hope to improve it on my next pieces...
    Thank you for appreciating my efforts Fred ;)
